CRIME ALERT: Reader Shares Sketch of Man Who Tried to Break Into Her Home
It’s not everyday that we receive hand-drawn sketches of suspicious suspects, but on Saturday (Feb. 16), the following drawing and note arrived in our inbox (click image to view larger version):
The attached is my sketch of a man who attempted to break in to my home this evening. He did so despite activating my audible exterior alarm.
The attempt happened within a few blocks of Lake Burien Presbyterian Church on 14th Ave SW Saturday evening (Feb. 16).
This is a man who attempted to break in to our home. Jiggling the door knob. Stayed at the door for several minutes trying to open the door. After the alarm sounded, he continued to try to ring the door bell, and jiggled the door. After calling the police, which he may or may not have heard was happening, he fled south on 14th Ave SW. He was on our front porch for 10 minutes solid. On a Saturday evening. And, stayed despite having sounded my alarm. He was definitely up to no good.
Please note that some of our construction tools have been stolen over the last six months. Is this the same perpetrator?
Name Removed by Request
BTW, my neighbor was robbed while they were home approximately two months ago. Is this the same bold person?
